You can get a great deal with either a foreclosure or short sale. The key is to have a good agent running a comparative market analysis with you on any property you're purchasing to make sure you're getting the most for your money. Not all short sales or bank owned homes are "screaming deals" and often an uneducated buyer can end up paying the same for these properties that they would for a traditional sale... with extra headache in the transaction to boot! Banks will evaluate the overall strength of your offer, being a cash buyer will help but the way your offer is constructed can end up being more important than that. Finally, what constitutes a good deal will depend greatly on what your goal for this property is. Are you looking to find your dream home at a savings, find a cheap property that you can put back on the market for a profit or looking for a long term investment? A good agent can help you evaluate your goals, find the very best properties to meet those goals and make sure that you're not overpaying. I'd be happy to assist you further in reaching your goals. Please feel free to give me a call (801)419-2681 email me at or visit my website at ... more

Contacting a local Realtor is your best avenue of finding these deals, there are website out there that offer information on foreclosures but many times you are chasing after something that will never happen, banks do not deal with retail buyers directly and distressed homeowners are always trying to find ways to save their home. ... more
